The birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots has been chosen as a venue for a top fashion show. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are expected to be among the visiting stars.
Karl Lagerfeld has chosen the atmospheric Scottish building to host the Chanel fashion show.
So Linlithgow will be host to an array of Hollywood superstars next month.
As well as Brad and Angie, Keira Knightly and Vanessa Paradis are on the guest list.
German actress and former fashion model Diane Kruger has previously attended Chanel shows.
Linlithgow Palace does not have a roof so over the next few weeks designers will be creating a futuristic glass cube to keep everyone warm and dry.
An insider told the Daily Record: “This show is one of the major dates in the fashion calendar.
“Previous events have been held in London, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo and New York, so this is a major coup for Scotland.
“The guest list will include very famous faces. We hope they remember to bring their winter woollies because West Lothian in December will not be for the faint-hearted.”
With Brad and Angelina planning to get married, perhaps they might find inspiration in a Scottish castle.
